Celebrate National Assisted Living Week® at EPOCH

National Assisted Living Week 2014

This week is National Assisted Living Week®, an annual event sponsored by the National Center for Assisted Living. To celebrate, our communities will host a series of events that all are welcome to enjoy. In honor of this year’s theme, “The Magic of Music,” many of these events include live concerts, music discussions and other musically related events to highlight the important role music plays in assisted living communities across the country.

Music brings joy to residents; helps them build relationships with one another, staff and the wider community; and even stimulates the brain and keeps them sharp. We hope you’ll join us as we honor our residents for all they’ve accomplished throughout their lives and thank staff, volunteers and families for all that they do to make our communities radiant, welcoming homes. All of our events are free, we just ask that you RSVP.
